Members of a stepfamily start out coming from different "lives", and have different ways of doing things, different traditions and techniques. Take the time to learn about each others´ ways of doing things, and adopt some as a sign of cohesiveness. Also, think up some fun and new traditions for your new family group - things and ways that none have done before. This will help build a new set of "memories" for you.
